EAST PEORIA, Ill -- A four-vehicle fender bender in East Peoria left some congestion on Washington Street Wednesday afternoon.

Just before 3 p.m. Wednesday, first responders arrived to a line-up of three automobiles and one motorcycle along Washington and Meadows Avenue.

An officer on the scene explains a car was going to make a left turn before a motorcycle nudged the back of it.

Three more vehicles were then involved in the chain reaction.

The officer says there were no serious injuries.

One motorist did go to an area hospital with neck pains.

The scene was cleared and traffic was running smoothly within an hour.
